A quarter of the cowhands in the West were Black. A Harlem composer, Allan Harris, found a way to honor their history. Cross That River, a musical journey, tells the story of Blue, a run-away slave who escapes from Louisiana to Texas and becomes one of America’s first Black Cowboys. Cross That River portrays a significant moment in American history where Black cowboys lived and helped settle the West. PASA tips its hat to our area’s Black Cowboys and we hope you will, too.
